Oie, Book Club!
Harry Potter week was fun, no? I’m glad we got the chance to take a look back at one of the most resonant and powerful series that took the world be storm.
I also love the fact that even though a lot of us love Harry Potter, we can still look at the books with reasonable critiques. Sometimes when you love something so much, you become blind to any flaws. I don’t feel that way about Harry Potter. It’s because I know it can be so special that I want it to be everything it can be.
Some may call that a high standard, but I’m proud to keep it going.
Oh, and how are we don’t on Zero K? I won’t lie y’all – I cannot for the life of me get into this! I keep slugging my way through, but I think I’m only about a quarter of the way. How far are you? What do you think so far?
Let me know in the comments!
Links We Love
- The Guardian took a look at the differences between the UK and US versions of Cloud Atlas. Wonder why publishers do that, and how the authors feel.
- LitHub went into the pros and cons of getting inside the head of villains, and it creeped me out.
- I found this list of the top 10 books about long marriages to be a bit of inspiration while in a fight with my husband.
- And this book just made my TBR, just because Matt Haig sounds awesome!
